Did a 91-year-old woman really get arrested for eating fried chicken with a fork?

Yes, but it was a prank.

The law does exist though.

In 1961, Gainesville, Georgia passed a measure making it illegal to eat fried chicken with anything other than your hands.

It was a publicity stunt to promote the city as the “poultry capital of the world.”
